About Our Farm 

Our 40-acre family farm is our homestead. We raise chickens, we chop our own wood for heat and use geothermal cooling in the summer. We have large gardens and a small orchard, along with three fully-stocked ponds to bring food to our table.

We have wild nut trees and fruit bushes on our property that we forage. Along with our dogs, cats, and kids, we live in a retired bed and breakfast which is big enough for our whole 7-person family!

We believe in wasting less, reusing more and being more self-sufficient.

Three Generations Strong

A Family Run Farm in Illinois Since 2018

Welcome to Homesteading Farm Life. In 2018, our family decided to move from the city to a 40-acre farm in rural Illinois to begin homesteading. 

We bought a retired bed and breakfast on 40 acres and are actively homesteading our property. 

Three generations live in this beautiful, bountiful space in peace and harmony as we take this amazing journey together. 

We are learning as we go and sharing our journey with you. 

My name is Melina, and I will be your host and guide as you join my family and I as we homestead on our 40-acre farm.
